The First Step is honesty with yourself that you want to change.
Your attitude always gives you a reason to not mess with your present way of thinking, feeling, and acting that you have always felt comfortable with. So why change anything? Then there is another side of you, which by the way truly exist, that desires something different. These desires are a good thing that you possess. I bet you some of your desires have repeated themselves many times over the years. This happens because that other side of you wants them and telling you to pursue them. But you do not. If you decide that you are in the over 90% category, then you have at least opened the door to creating the change you desire. This is a great decision on your part.
At this point, most look up ways to change. Watching videos, reading 1-10 guidelines, and reading some great quotes. Have you noticed how all of these make you feel good temporarily? You may even change a little for a while. But why don’t you change permanently? Because none of this made you understand exactly why you think, feel, and act the way you do. This awareness of why you are wired the way you are, allows you to see your own roadblocks to change. Does it make sense if you see your roadblock, then you work around them?
Yes, you tried but you simply did not try the right way. I had to become aware of my roadblocks to create the study guides of my mind.
The magic word is “aware”. You have knowledge of the reasons behind why you think, feel, and act the way you do. You already have the knowledge to change but being totally aware of them is that unseen other levels within you. For example, if right now you’re thinking I want some change, then you know your mind is open. However, if you are thinking I am aware enough then you just witness your attitude giving you a reason not to mess with yourself.
True awareness about yourself provides you answers to questions like:
- Did you know that it is a desire for things you want but do not need that transforms your life?
- Did you know that the understanding of your genetic and environmental surroundings is what you will use to create any changes?
You have made it this far. Is it time to pursue that change you desire!!
